What are your general comments?

"The interview day is long but very relaxed. I interviewed with Dean Gaber who is a wonderful guy who really conveys how the school cares for its students. I then interviewed with Dr. Robbins who is a really interesting man to talk to (we went over time by abut 10 mins just shooting the poop). There are many presentation throughout the day, including a pretty good fin aid talk. Overall, the training received there would be top notch, but the same can't be said for their facilities. The place needs a face lift badly. My impression is that they are funneling all available money into the new building and the Arizona campus, which is a shame since KCOM is the mecca of osteopathy and should be a shining example for all other schools. Bottom line is that if you can take the outdated surroundings of the Tinning center, then the school is almost second to none. Hopefully they will continue the update trend as with the new library/OMM facility, but Dean Gaber indicated the next project will likely be a new research building." Report Response
